COQUI COQUI COBA, MEXICO
Birthday gifts, 2018
At University in Switzerland, there was a laundry room with several washing machines and dryers that we all shared. I remember that feeling of uneasiness whenever I caught a glimpse of black and green stripped socks with yellow toe boxes in the same basket as a pink dress shirt and a teal tee. Not only do I prefer to wear neutral colours but I also want everything around me to look harmonious together.
JL is the only person that understands me and feels the same way I do - in fact, I will share more pictures of our home so you have a better idea. She is also able to pick the most incredible gifts for me, in form and in meaning, every single time. See how all the colours match? However, there has never been a greater gift than the one I received the day I met her. A harmonious life, all at once!
Coqui Coqui Tulum
Two years ago, I booked one night at Coqui Coqui Tulum. I remember wondering if it would be better if I cancelled and came back some other time instead, since I had to travel back to Mexico City and did not have any more time to spend there.
I am glad that I chose to go. A few months later, the property was seized and demolished by the Mexican government.
I think about it constantly and sometimes feel that it changed me. I wish I could once again walk through the patio, smelling the orange scent that lingered in the air.

Perfume & Seashells: I adore perfume and seashells, my sister returned from another trip to Mexico with seashells from Cancun and Neroli Negro perfume oil from Coqui Coqui in Tulum, I used these to craft her a gypsy terrarium with succulents, tiki fern, lichen, river pebbles and wood. These little habitats create beautiful dwellings for living creatures in our spaces, helping to dispel our daily trivialities.
Cafe Life: I am always happy when my name is spelled correctly on coffee dates.
Dresses: There is such an immutable charm to period gowns, seeped in magic, voluptuousness and romance, defining a time when the ideals and desire for luxury and glamour were maximal.
